Yep, if it's on the intake, you don't need the airline connector, just feed it into the intake as before, that's what I do with mine. Of course if you put it on the output side, then the airline connector becomes a necessity.

One thing I've noticed with my reactor on the input side is late in the day when the water is saturated with oxygen, oxygen comes out of solution inside the reactor (due to lower pressure and/or turbulence?) and it makes a water trickling kind of noise (kinda hard to explain). It's not too bad, but I just wonder if putting it on the output would reduce this effect (due to slightly higher pressure = higher gas solubility)?? Does anyone else running their reactors on the input or output notice this "running water" sound?
